Marcel took over his Beaujolais Domaine in 1973 and in 1981 under the influence of researcher and chemist Jules Chauvet the and the infamous gang (includingJean-Claude ‘Le Chat’ Chanudet) eschewed the ubiquitous chemicals, went back to traditional and artisanal methods and first spoke out for natural wine triggering a revolution still underway. 

Named after Camille and Mathieu’s grandfather, Cuvée Camille comes from a 1 hectare plot in La Roche du Py, a lieu-dit within the famous Côte du Py climat where the soil is very thin, and the roots plunge straight into the granitic rock. Here the 80-100 year old vines yield a wine which is deep and concentrated with ripe fruit, wild herbs and spices and a fine minerality.
